Did you ever get to the point where you couldn't stand the mess in your house another second? I'm there right now! Tonight all three kids will be at AWANA because Jonathan doesn't have youth group, so this morning Mike and I were discussing whether we'd go out or stay home and my suggestion was "let's stay home and clean". That's how bad it is. The thing is, it really isn't any worse than usual (maybe even a little better than sometimes), but I need it cleaner right now. Does anyone else do this? I feel this way about my kids too (not that I need them cleaner, although sometimes that is the case) they might be behaving really well, but something could hit me wrong and I think they're being terribly and I'm an awful Mom...the whole nine yards. Other times they might be having a real attitude problem (usually Jake, but the teen and preteen can have some issues once in a while too), but I can handle it just fine. I guess what I'm trying to say is the old addage "If Mama ain't happy, no one's happy" (and vice-versa) or how Mommy perceives things makes all the difference. This is why for about 3 hours today I was on my hands and knees scrubbing the grout and tile (it's still not that great), and I called the carpet cleaning guy and scheduled him to come tomorrow! Mike and I will spend our datenight tonight putting the ceiling fan in in the loft and then cleaning the loft.
It wasn't an all work and no play day however, we made some Velentine crafts this morning and then we went with friends to a nursing home to sing and hand out Valentines.
